Here come the sluggers

Sun, 01 Jun 2014 20:52:06 +00002014-06-01T20:52:06Z

Mark Buehrle is Major League Baseball's first 10-game winner.

Manny Ramirez the player-coach?

Sun, 25 May 2014 14:44:25 +00002014-05-25T14:44:25Z

Manny Ramirez has done a lot of strange things in his career.

Sunday, he added another to the list.

The soon-to-be 42-year-old outfielder -- and "outfielder" never fit a player better than it did Manny, who always seemed to be "out in left field" -- will be a player-coach for the Triple-A Iowa Cubs.

Is Prince Fielder on the decline?

Sat, 24 May 2014 15:30:32 +00002014-05-24T15:30:32Z

Prince Fielder doesn't look like one of the most durable players in baseball.

Prior to this week, he had been the most durable player in the sport.

The bulky Texas Rangers first baseman -- listed at 5-foot-11, 275 pounds -- has a herniated disk in his neck and is expected to have season-ending surgery on Tuesday, May 27.

Jose Abreu, one of the year's best stories, heads to DL

Sun, 18 May 2014 15:56:28 +00002014-05-18T15:56:28Z

The six years and $68 million the Chicago White Sox invested in Cuban slugger Jose Abreu seems like a bargain by Ryan Howard and B.J. Upton standards.

Mauer doesn't make the cut at first base

Sun, 11 May 2014 15:08:26 +00002014-05-11T15:08:26Z

Whenever I rank Joe Mauer in anything -- whether it's fantasy baseball or the series of position rankings we just started at -- I always think about his 2009 season.

Sun, 04 May 2014 16:59:50 +00002014-05-04T16:59:50Z

Sunday morning, Derek Jeter received a visit from Peyton Manning.

Not surprisingly, retirement was a big topic of conversation in Manning's visit with the media after his chat with the Yankees' shortstop.

Selig is right: Baseball is in good shape

Sun, 04 May 2014 09:56:39 +00002014-05-04T09:56:39Z

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig told reporters Friday that the sport has "never been more popular."

MLB's television ratings are a source of much debate, but Selig's point can't be dismissed from two perspectives:

Pujols becomes a post-1999 rarity -- a 'clean' member of 500-homer club

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 16:42:33 +00002014-04-27T16:42:33Z

When Albert Pujols hit a pair of home runs against the Yankees on Tuesday, April 22, to become the 26th member of Major League Baseball's 500-homer club, we were inspired.

Unless you believe Jack Clark (and you can't, since Clark took back his original comments), Pujols is the one of a select few sluggers to reach the 500-homer club in the last 15 years who hasn't been linked to performance-enhancing drugs.

MLB regains its senses: A catch is back to being a catch

Fri, 25 Apr 2014 21:05:51 +00002014-04-25T21:05:51Z

Major League Baseball went back to basics on Friday.

Don't worry, MLB didn't get rid of instant replay already.

Ladies and gents, a catch is back to being a catch.

When baseball implemented new replay rules this season, it stressed that a fielder had to catch the ball and maintain control of it as he removed it from his glove and got set to throw it.

Albert Pujols is returning to form

Sun, 20 Apr 2014 10:12:59 +00002014-04-20T10:12:59Z

If you took Albert Pujols in the fourth or fifth round of your fantasy baseball draft, you're feeling pretty good this morning.

OK, it's Easter and there is chocolate all over the house, so of course you're pretty pumped. But The Machine is feeling pretty festive, too.
